Looking at some forecasts for tomorrow. Radar shows that any rain should be done by approximately 3PM and then clear for the rest of the night. All depends on how fast it comes down. Drainage works great so lets hope this is right on and we could have some awesome track conditions tomorrow. We will see!

Calling for heavy rains and wind from our forecast on accuweather. We plan on traveling around 2:00 tomorrow. Please try to keep us posted on here if it's too bad that you have to call it to save the traveling.

Dry all week? We had rain on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday...spotty sprinkles on my way home today but for the most part clear.

Tossed the B4.1 down for a test run in the back yard this evening and WOW is it fast...I just hope I can control the thing.

Hoping to get out early tomorrow and will post a few updates as the day progresses. Will definitely keep up to date though.

It dumped on us last week had to be close to an inch of rain in under an hour and the track drained in 10 mins with a few small puddle in between jumps.
SO thats not an issue. The issue is keeping the water in the clouds between the hours of 5-10pm

Currently raining in Somerset (Approx. 5 miles from track)
As for running tomorrow, this is completely up to Shawn. I am attempting to get in contact with him but this decision is in his hands.

We'll see how this storm today turns out. Will be keeping it updated here.

Well I'm looking at three different forecasts for today and they all vary in terms of when the rain will stop, the Weather Channel says between 6:00p and 7:00p. Accuweather says between 4:00p and 5:00p and Weatherbug.com says between 8:00p and 9:00p.

I want to race as much as the next guy but my guess is that it isn't happening today.

To everyone that is considering on coming. We are going to give you a 3 hour heads up on the conditions. We start at 5pm so at 2 pm we will officially call the race if need be. This is the last points series race that is a make up so we want to be totally fair to everyone that is planning on traveling. Please if you do not have access to the internet, send me a message so I can text you if need be. Thank you for your patience. We are only delaying this because the first rounds got busted up by the mountains , but we are unsure of the second round of rain that is scheduled to come between 11AM-3PM.

Also, if it does rain out today we will reschedule for tomorrow. It will be a non points series race assuming the track is good to go. Racing will begin at 12:30PM. **This is only if we get rained out today**

Remember they call me rain main at G's. I seem to attract the wet stuff when I show up. In fact, last time I came, it poured before I arrived. I know the track can handle it from that night.
